    Ford going into F1 is going to be less involved than Ford in WRC with MSport. They will pay some money to put a Ford sticker on the engine. At most they will make the hybrid parts and Red Bull Power Trains will make the rest. It could actually help MSport since Red Bull is now in bed with Ford and they tend to sponsor teams in other series for their partners. For example after they got Honda engines they sponsored a Honda NSX in the Japanese GT series.

    Seems like the WRC is taking at least the next video game seriously. Here's hoping!

    Well it is codemasters developing it so should be good, although EA have recently taken the helms....hopefully they won't be able to ruin Codemaster's work too much, fingers crossed!
    If in doubt, flat out!

    Well, they did a bad job with F1 22 so wouldn't hype the game up too much. Also, as it's EA there are probably going to be quite a lot of microtransactions.

    A bad job? Lmao. It was kinda underwhelming for sure, because of that whole F1 Life stuff, but other than that it was a great game. Also it is being made be Dirt Rally dev team, which is different team than the one that makes F1.

    Also have you stuck in 2017? Even the new Need For Speed didn't really have so aggressive microtransactions.

    Having played the game a bit and looking at the reactions of the community I don't remember an F1 game in the past few years that has been received as bad as 22.

    Regarding microtransactions, I base my opinion on the EA games I have played a lot and rather seriously (FIFA and Madden) but maybe microtransactions are mostly about sports games.

    Yeah you are right in both. They tried new things, turns out it was a miss, and that's basically all (+ofc straight line speed bug, which took them some time to repair).

    And yes, games like FIFA and MADDEN are based on the Ultimate Team, which is heavily based on microtransactions. But I can't really see how it could be implemented in a rally game. There are rumors that there will build your car mode, that's only place I can imagine microtransactions.

    But I still believe in the game. Codemasters have kinda independent position in EA, so I believe it won't make much difference.

    The poor job with WRC The Game by Kylotonn (until very recently) hasn't done WRC any favours at all. Most fans know Dirt Rally and Dirt 2.0 are far superior for realism and graphics. This has meant they were 'driving' classic rally cars and R5's rather than the mega 2017 cars.
